Last Thursday we had our monthly Perry County Farm Bureau meeting. This was my first meeting, and boy was it a good one. We were fortunate enough to have some of our legislators attend the meeting. It was very informative. They talked with us about what is going on in the legislature that pertains to agriculture, while offering to answer any questions that we may have had for them.
The legislators that attended are in the photo below. Standing L-R: Senator Billy Hudon, District 45; Dot Cole, Perry County Farm Bureau President. Sitting L-R: Senator John Polk, District 44; Representative Dennis DeBar, District 105.
Farm Bureau plays an important part in agriculture. Many people around here think that Farm Bureau is an insurance company, but the Mississippi Farm Bureau Federation is the largest general farm organization in the state. Insurance is just one of the things that the MSFB offers. Click here, for more information on the Mississippi Farm Bureau Federation.
